In most cases, there is no legal requirement to acquire planning permission of a glamping pod as the structure is seen by most councils as an addition to the existing property.
Unfortunately, there are limits to this, and you should check with your local authority in regards to the size and function of the structure. For example, if you wish to rent the pod, you’ll almost certainly need a license.
If you’re struggling to convince authorities to grant you planning permission, consider making the structure ‘temporary’ by adding wheels, example. If they know the structure can be moved or dismantled with ease, they might become more lenient.
This is dependent on the materials used in the construction of the glamping pod and any internal heating system.
Most glamping pods are designed for comfort throughout colder months. The walls can be easily insulated and a heating system installed. Many pods are equipped with central heating or a wood-burning stove.
The phrase ‘glamping’ has become a universal term, as is derived from the words ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’.
The allure of no longer having to erect a tent in the driving rain has resulted in glamping become a huge trend across the globe. In the U.S, the glamping market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 12.5% from 2019 to 2025.
Whether you’re planning on craning a pod into your back yard, or even starting your own glamping site, it pays to understand what your budget might fetch you.
As with everything, the size of your budget will determine the quality of the pod you can purchase. Some of the more budget glamping pod options come in as low as €3000. At this price, you can expect a single room with enough space for a large double bed.
If you’re looking to get a little more out of your pod, a budget of around €30,000 will expand the size of your pod to encompass a living area, bathroom and spacious bedroom.
Well, depends. With the population on the rise, house prices increasing, and global warming ever a major concern, thousands have chosen to live full-time in glamping, or ‘eco-pods’. Glamping pods are more energy and space-efficient than almost any piece of real estate existing on the high-street. Life in a glamping pod re-connects the residence to nature and enables people to get out of the vicious cycle of renting.
